Um, hi. Just started getting back into RPGs. I've been listening to the Wizards of the Coast and Fear the boot podcast.

Welcome to the community! For finding players the Player Registry (http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/memberlist.php) is an invaluable tool and for recruiting players as a DM the Campaign Invitations (http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=17) forum is perfect. I wish you the best of luck in finding gaming bliss in the near future.

I've seen six other people within driving distance of me and am currently trying to get in contact with them. Also, I am interested in any web based D&D clients and instant message programs that are known to run games well. I would like it if the program showed the dice rolls to everyone. Please let me know if they exist. I'm willing to purchase the software if it is greatly recommended.

Welcome!

There are plenty of those around. I've used OpenRPG, and others have talked about Kloog and some others.

For OpenRPG, it has a nice integrated chat w/dice rolling, and you can put your character sheet into a tree structure. Works with any premade set of rules, such as the D&D 3.5 character sheets. To attack or do a skill check, its an easy click and it shows everyone, while the DM still has the option of doing a quiet roll only he/she sees.

I'm sure the others have at least that much flexibility.

I highly recommend Klooge as it is the longest running and most established online client among its competition.
